Absolutely wonderful in every way! View on TripAdvisor We booked a 2 day 1 night cruise - 2 couples - we had the boat to ourselves (only 2 staterooms on the boat). Our guide, Tien, was interesting & incite full. Theviews/swimming/kayaking were wonderful.
Our experience felt personalized, we have no hesitation in fully recommending this cruise

Amazing adventure for the family View on TripAdvisor We spent three wonderful, calm and quiet day on Cat Ba Du Ky private boat. I must say, that was the best adventure of our Vietnam journey. Having a whole boat alone with my family and keeping off the tourists was priceless. The boat itself is very modest but the crew is amazing and Tien is the best guide! :-)

Fabulous! The Best Way To See HaLong Bay! View on TripAdvisor My boyfriend and I took the 2day/1night tour (which I thought was plenty of time) with Tien as our guide in February. It was our one big splurge for the trip and completely worth it!
The boat had a very quaint and homey feel with only us, our guide Tien, the Captain and the cook on board. I was impressed with how comfortable the bed was, how hot the shower was, and how delicious and plentiful the food was. At one point very early on we passed a party boat with loud music and people dancing and were SO glad we hadn't gone that route! Our guide was very informed, helpful and precious.Overall, simply fabulous! We loved this trip and can't recommend our guide highly enough!
